Junkers 52 "Tante Ju" /Lisunov Li2/C47 ❤️Fan Club & Help

Recommended Posts

Hi Adger! I wish you a BIG WELCOME to the club ^^

congratulation on your purchase.

I remember the very first time I flew it... I felt so good!

Read "how to fly it" on the initial post . Remember , no need to use flaps except if you want to do a short take off/landing.

Cargo delivery is the only option in career mode (for the moment we hope)

 

In Mp, you can find other people flying it. ask fighter cover on the delivery zone, they will be glad to help you/ FLy on tree top is your best cover.

Coconut server use a lot Tante Ju

A few pics from my new Ju52 campaign...wow what a plane what a 1st mission,Flying on the nape of the earth (i dont think i went above 150ft) :o:

 

Loved it absolutely loved it..really tense and that's with just ground forces firing at me. God help me when i come up against enemy fighters.

I really hope the Devs give us more SP mission variety,im already in love with flying this beautiful Tante Ju

I have not fly my Ju-52 for a while because career mode lacks the mission types.

Did patch bring paratroop and paradrop missions back?

No i see no mention of it Godspeed..I really wish the team would give us more mission types for this brilliant craft.

I can't wait for the DC3. I'd even venture to say that I'd buy an Interwar/Postwar civil aviation pack if it had work put into other features that would help keep it interesting.

Mostly, dropping paratroopers at night over Normandy with my friends covering/hunting me is going to be spectacular. Some day.

Hey Adger, thanks again for your screen and sharing your story.

Regarding the fighter, good job ! you shot it down!

To shut down fighters easily:

fly very low, almost tree top. 

Put the level stabilisator, pilot manually and aim your gun manually. If the fighter is behind your tail, use the turn key. 

Shoot when the fighter is close enough  less than 500m or your drum magazine will be empty too soon. Aim the engine.

Thanks for the advice once again 1./TG1_Nil ..I could have avoided being captured. I got bounced just a few km from my drop off airfield.

 

And instead of heading back to land I decided to try and run to friendly lines :o:..Totally noob error that I won't be repeating . :biggrin:

@Adger You are very welcome,

I made a new discovery:

If you have a fighter, do not engage autopilot level stabilisator.

It seems that after some tests, the IA plane know somehow where I am going when I use autopilot or level stabilisator, so his aim is very good.

It is not happening when I pilot manually. 

Thus, do not use pilot help anymore, rather Pilot yourself. this way, he can not predict your trajectory.

I can't wait for more missions :( I want med evac so so bad. Especially in stalingrad, it's my dream to fly with cargo and then being able to load wounded and fly back. I really hope that devs will do this kind of double task missions, where unloading cargo would load new one (wounded) and then you fly back and unload them somewhere else. :fly:

I have big hopes for new missions when they make russian transport plane, this may bring new mission types. VIP transport, med evac, troop transport (this should be really easy, just put Whermacht instead of fallschirmjager in ju52) and cosmetic and custom cargo (being tasked with fuel transport so you would only have oil barrels inside etc. And being able to adjust weight of cargo, just like fuel).

 

And thing I would reaaaaly love to see is being able to open door in cockpit :lol: i know it may be small and stupid thing but being able to open door, look at stuff inside your plane, paratroopers jumping out of it etc. When you can just watch that in 3rd person, on full realism you cant :( It would be really cool to be able to see what's there.

 

Edit: another suggestion would be realistic unloading cargo time. It should be optional because not everyone would enjoy it. I would personaly enjoy waiting few minutes to unload it :P

German tail guns are the worst 😐 if that 13mm one was mass produced and used all over the world then yea would be cool. But question is, when did they start putting them on ju52? If that was 1944 then there is no point of having it, at least now.

I take this from wikipedia.

"The MK 108 was quickly ordered into production and was installed in a variety of Luftwaffe fighter aircraft. It saw first operational service in late autumn 1943 with the Bf 110G-2 bomber destroyers and in the Bf 109G-6/U4."

 

I don't know much about it, but i think that fits for last days of campaign with G6. And maybe it will be something to use in bodenplatte?

Anachronism is pretty huge in this game, so why start being historical now? 

JU 87 with 37 mm cannons and same with IL 2´s in Stalingrad? 

I find it a bit amusing that something is ok but other stuff is a no no

Late autumn is, let's say november, Our career mode on Kuban ends october, 9th. And the MK108 was in the first line for intercepting thr heavies over germany. So the first units that were equipped with them were surely on the western front.

For Bodenplatte, yes, but then we needed the late version of the G6, which is more or less the same as the G14, maybe without MW50.

There should be a LOT of loadout types:

 

  • Empty -- done
  • Crates -- done
  • Fallschirmjäger -- done
  • Air-drop supplies -- done
  • Medical evacuees
  • Oil drums
  • SdKfz 2
  • Wehrmacht troops
  • VIP-Offizieren

 

And then, add the statistics so these can all be tracked/used by mission builders and included in the stats engine by @=FB=Vaal .

 

 

 

Also... lots of other interesting ideas in this thread:

Ju 87s cannot be flown with 37 mm cannons at Stalingrad in the new career mode. As for Il-2s - there were some with 37 mms at Stalingrad. So, it's a non-issue.

G-6s with the MK108 in the East were a 1944 feature.

Hello all,

 

Since this is the home of all the Ju-52 lovers, does anyone know what the staffel crest for 1./KGrzbV9 or 1./TG3 was?  A picture would be fabulous.  This is hopefully for a mess of new Ju-52 skins I am trying to make.

 

Cheers,

Hello,

 

Yes, I used that reference already.  Unfortunately it has crests for only 4 of the 5 staffeln within KGrzbV9 (the exception being 1./KGrzbV9).  I was hoping there might have been an alternate source.

 

Thanks anyways :)

 

I have completed my very first skin for this simulation... Behold 4V+AB from Stab./KGrzbv9!  This aircraft is a historical fiction, since I haven't been able to locate a photo of the actual aircraft.  This is my best approximation, based on Luftwaffe coding conventions and typical camo patterns applied to other aircraft from KGrzbV9.  It seemed a shame to waste that sexy crest from the KGrzbV9 career in BoM.  I plan to make a winter version as well and then, if I'm feeling REALLY adventurous, perhaps some aircraft from the other 4 staffeln in KGrzbV9. This skin will have swastika and non-swastika versions.  I'm a noob at this, so I may need help getting these hosted somewhere for your downloading pleasure.

 

Cheers,

How is the Ju 52 career? I was one of the supporters of the Ju 52, but never got is since I was not really able to splash on such a thing. However, now I can, and so I am not sure if I should get it. Since I mostly fly in the career, I would like to know the quality of the missions with the Ju 52 in the career.

At the moment I believe that the career mode only offers cargo drops as missions.

If you're familiar with Pats Campaign Generator ( PWCG ) then you can set up a career and fly different types of missions hames..

 

I personally love the Ju52 in this sim it's great to fly,if the Devs continue to improve the career then hopefully we will see different types of missions for the Tante Ju in the future
